July 9th- Hands And Feet
July 23rd- Upper Body
August 13th- Lower Body
August 27th- Core Treatment/Spine

Over the course of 4 Sundays we’ll take you on a tour of YOUR body and learn simple self treatment techniques and alignment principles to keep you feeling open, balanced, and pain free. Learn how to ease tension and pain in your neck and shoulders, explore your spine, treat your hands and feet, experience a deep abdominal awakening, and get yourself a new pair of legs (and hips and low back!).

Discover how stuck stress in your body, dehydrated connective tissue, alignment, and your every day habits are affecting how you stand, move and breathe. Learn to know when things are “off” and how to make changes today and over time, to feel better and move easier.

Each workshop will be a discovery journey through 4 steps.

Step 1: Get To Know Your Body
Take a tour of your own body and get a better understanding what is happening on many levels- every beautiful habit, pattern, and everything you’ve picked up through the years. It's not just about your obvious aches, pains, and tensions. Be ready for a few surprises.

Step 2: Mobilize
Using MELT techniques, we’ll declutter your body, rehydrating connective tissue, rebalancing your nervous system and releasing your joints.

Step 3: Stabilize
With MELT Neurostrength techniques we’ll start to reorganize and learn easy techniques to repattern old habits and rediscover deep (and often lost) patterns of stability around the pelvis, shoulder girdle, or spine.

Step 4: Real Life
Finally you’ll learn how to apply all this information to real life, your real alignment, and real movement every day.  This is where the real transformation happens.  I’ll put the ball in your court to begin a new evolution in your own body.

7/9 Hands And Feet

7/23 Neck And Shoulders (Upper Body Love)
Learn how to unwind your neck and shoulders from the hands up. If you carry your tension in your neck, shoulders, upper back, or even if you have achy hands or elbows, this workshop is for you. We’ll also cover the 5 minute facelift for those that missed the MELT Anti- Aging workshop.

8/13 Lower Body
The perfect treat for tired, achy knees and feet, tight legs, and cranky low backs. Whether you sit all day or pound your legs and feet into the ground on a regular basis - give your lower body a fresh start now, AND learn how to keep it that way.

8/27 Core Treatment
Rediscover your body's natural balanced effortless posture, reconnect to your most powerful core center for more efficient movement, and learn how to treat your own back pain and tension.

You’ll walk away from each of these workshops with

  • A deeper understanding or your own body.
  • Self treatment tools of recovery and healing.
  • Corrective Exercises to strengthen the deep support mechanisms of your body and change the way you move, relieving (and saving!) your joints, and chronic tension patterns (even if you feel like you’ve always had them).
  • An everyday plan to support your body better, and reduce or prevent wear and tear, pain, and injury.
  • deeper trust in your body and it’s ability to change.
  • Worksheets and audio recordings to continue your new practice on your own.

Before the program, when laying on the floor my head would always be 3 to 4 inches off the ground. Now my head touches the ground easily. Over the years I lost one inch of height, but in two months of practicing MELT with Zoe, I have regained one half inch in height. Both of these results I consider miracles. My legs can now move faster because my vertebrae are not impinging on my nerves. I feel I reversed years of loss of flexibility in my spine and pelvis. I would especially recommend this course to people who are experiencing problems due to loss of flexibility and are experiencing pain.

Participating in TYB was a lynchpin in my physical recovery from childbirth. As a wellness and physical fitness professional, I had an enormous amount of knowledge and body awareness going into the MELT series. However, I knew I was missing something deep that I couldn’t quite find on my own and I was beginning to get injured in my regular practices. This ‘missing piece’ is what Zoe brilliantly teaches in TYB. Over the course of 8 weeks, Zoe taught me how to relax into subtle strength and encouraged awareness of intricate muscles, open breathing and a balanced nervous system. This all translated into easeful movement and core strength that is now stable from the inside out. MELT is now a permanent part of my personal practice and the work that I do with clients.

Not to be too dramatic, but I also feel like I am coming away with some more hope: not only do I feel like I have some more tools to help in-between visits to the professionals (PT, OT, etc.), but I can really see this as a long-term self-care routine that is already showing lasting benefits and potential improvement in my various conditions.
I feel like this intensive has also provided some momentum: the routine of twice weekly class and the experience of seeing the clear and immediate benefits led to doing some MELT almost every day on my own (and that continues so far). I hope that this will propel me into feeling more able to take responsibility for my own well-being and health/fitness.

I have lived with chronic lower back pain for years. I assumed that this was just something I had to learn to live with until someone suggested I try Zoe’s MELT class.
Right off the bat, I felt I was in the right place. Here, my back pain wasn’t an obstacle to doing something else— like postures or exercises—it was the reason we were there.
Gradually, by doing the MELT movements and internalizing Zoe’s descriptions of how our bodies work—I have finally been able to understand “what is wrong with my back.” I’ve been to bodyworkers and PT people, but finally, it all started to make sense. And—hallelujah!—for the first time in a long time my back didn’t hurt 24-7. MELT has given me hope that just moving around during the day can be so much more comfortable and ease-ful.
